Yeah. News says PBOC held a serious talk with Chinese banks and payment service providers on April 24, requesting them to stop withdrawal for trading platforms and close accounts completely. http://mp.weixin.qq.com/s?amp;idx=2&mid=200143905&__biz=MzA5MTI3NzYyNA==

财新网】(记者 李穗穗)4月24日上午,央行约谈了部分商业银行和第三方支付机构,部署下一阶段比特币风险的防控工作,希望彻底切断比特币交易的资金链条。

Caixin Wang, PBOC met a few banks and payment processors to discourage, curb and thoroughly cutoff financing mechanisms for bitcoin exchange and trading.

央行从4月22日开始,通过中国支付清算协会部署了此次约谈,被约谈的对象包括仍与比特币交易有关的商业银行和第三方支付机构,数目不少于二十家,包括各大商业银行,支付宝、财付通等大型支付机构,以及前期卷入火币网充值码事件的易生支付、易宝支付等。

此次约谈由央行条法司司长穆怀朋主持,参加者包括央行支付司司长励跃等众多央行官员,规格空前之高。

央行人士称,这次约谈主要是针对4月15日后比特币价格大幅反弹,

This session was to address sharp rebound after the April 15 deadline

帐户清理工作没有达到预期目的的尴尬局面。

?? did not meet expected results ??

央行3月发布《关于进一步防范比特币风险的通知》,强调银行和第三方支付机构不得服务于比特币交易,现有开户限期在4月15日前清理完毕。然而,4月15日,多数比特币交易平台依然正常运转,比特币价格还从2500元飙升至3000元。

Despite warnings, bitcoin exchanges have continued operations as per usual after the deadline. Prices had even gone up.
